INTERIOR TRENDS FOR 2017
The forecasters and designers have spoken, and for 2017 they’re predicting some of the hot interior design trends to include terracotta tiles, cork and jewel tones… just to name a few. Here, a look at some of these must-have items you’ll want to be sure and stock up on for the coming year.
Warm materials such as terracotta tiles will replace the now popular cool and white tones. Expect natural matte finishes that can be used as feature walls in bathrooms and for fireplaces.
This stylish material can add warmth and texture to spaces, and it’s also ideal for absorbing noise in large, open-plan homes. You’ll see it used in coffee table bases in combination with stone tops, as well as with solid cork stools or side tables and walls on which you can pin notes.
Say goodbye to navy and midnight blues and hello to dark green. Look for it as a paint color for rooms, as well as in furniture, throw pillows and décor. Also expected to be popular are jewel tones inspired by metals, space, stars, clouds and the cosmos. Think metallic, metal, raw-cut quartz, Lucite and opal in transparent fabrics, floaty silks and sheers.
Upholstered bed frames
Say no more to the wooden bed frame. Long seen in luxury hotel bedrooms and celebrity homes, upholstered bed frames are set to dominate the marketplace. Opt for a classic model in a neutral color with buttons or a plush one in velvet to update and add instant glamour.
Homes with nooks and places to retreat are becoming all the rage due to our often stress-filled lives. Start planning your haven of tranquility now, complete with deep sofas sporting linen slip covers, oversized love seats, day beds, Icelandic sheepskins, chunky knit wool rugs and floor cushions.
